Shots comfortably finished 15th in League Two after winning the Blue Square Premier by a stunning 15-point margin 12 months earlier. Hylton noticed a definite increase in quality between the two divisions and identified the Shakers as the side that stood out most. The marksman, who notched five goals this season, told the Shots' official website: "There's a few games that stick out in my head, Rochdale at home and being 4-0 down at half-time was a very tough game. They made it very hard for us play or create anything in the game. "Bradford away was very difficult too. They were very good going forward and created a lot of chances and the scoreline showed that, but I'd have to say that in my opinion the best team we played was Bury. "When we played them at the EBB Stadium we were 3-0 down and even though we came back to earn a draw, their first-half performance was the best I saw from a team all season. It was quite an achievement to grab a draw." As for the best player he came up against, Hylton added: "Jamie Ward at Chesterfield. He scored a hat-trick against us and was sharp, quick, had good movement and being the top goalscorer in the league showed he could finish too. The fact that Sheffield United went on to buy him shows what a good player he was."
